1 THE KILL SWITCH

2 MAN'S VOICE (V.O.) Today I will find it. Today I will get her back. FADE TO: INT. ELEVATOR CAR - ASCENDING A tall man in a black coat, a matching panama hat, and leather gloves, stands inside. Grief and anger has mapped his face. His eyes, though, remain uncharted. The name is. He's 43. The car stops. The door opens. An Asian MAID, 26, steps in dragging a cleaning cart with her. MAID (as friendly as a kitten) Good morning. Luca doesn't even look at her. She shrugs, then demands 7. (V.O.) If you trust anyone in this building, you may as well start french-kissing snakes. The Maid holds the broom handle. MAID May I ask you which floor you're going to, sir? (Without looking) Seventeen and a half. MAID (chuckles) Sorry, sir, this building doesn't have such floor. And Maids don't have swords. The friendly look on the Maid's face disappear. She unsheathes a samurai sword out of the broom. Then strikes like lightening. Luca dodges it skillfully. A super epic combat plays out in front of our eyes within the confinement of the elevator car. The maid is a sword master. But Luca is way faster. Maid swings and misses. Luca traps her sword with his foot against the wall. She tries to pull it free once. Twice. The third time, Luca tricks her and releases the sword.

3 Her strong pull puts her off balance for a second, which is all Luca needs to break her neck with a sidekick. He hides her body inside the cleaning cart. The elevator reaches floor number 7. A heavy, old man, in a suit boards the car. He looks like a. He flashes Luca a friendly smile. No reaction from Luca. Bob demands 13. (V.O.) I triangulated Alessa's last call. She was in this building no doubt. Chances are she's still here. In that Goddamned floor. ALESSA (V.O.) (FLASHBACK) Luca, baby, come and get me out of here. These people are crazy. I found that floor. (crying) I wish I hadn't, baby. I wish I hadn't-- No, please n-- Luca grinds his teeth to the memory of her shaking voice. You don't happen to know where floor seventeen and a half is, do you? Wha--? Must be between floor seventeen and eighteen, I assume. Luca gives a mocking smile. I hope you will keep your sense of humour. Luca kicks the kill switch with his heel, and elbows Bob hard on the nose. What the fuck! How do you get to that floor! You're crazy. There is no such floor. Help! Somebody help! Bob reaches for the kill switch, but Luca grabs his hand.

4 I don't have time to break your fat fingers. But I can take a second to make you blind. Luca grabs Bob's head with both hands and presses his eyeballs with his thumbs. Stop, please, stop. Where is the fucking floor! (sobs) I don't know. I swear. Luca crashes one eyeball. Bob screams. He punches and kicks to no avail. You're running out of eyeballs, man. The secret panel. You need a code. (sobs) I don't know the fucking code. I swear. (V.O.) People breathe air. They breathe lies. Luca puts more pressure on the remaining eyeball. Zulu alpha five six ford eight. Luca grabs him by the collar and slams him against the elevator panel. The secret panel. Bob, holding his bleeding eye socket with one hand, franticly punches in a series of numbers with the other. The car light turns into a blue glow. The numbers panel flips. A more elaborate panel replaces it. Luca shoves Bob aside. He enters the code. A mechanism WHIRLS loudly. The car starts to move horizontally. (V.O.) It was too easy. Something was off. Luca produces a feet-tall, well-oiled revolver.

5 The car stops. Bob gives Luca the finger. (V.O.) I guess I just french-kissed a snake. The door slides open. Luca jumps at Bob and holds him as a shield against the raging bullets coming his way. Fat and blood splashes out as Bob's body takes in the hot slugs. Luca starts shooting back from under Bob armpit. The shooting goes on for a moment, then it abates. (V.O.) It was my fault she got involved. I brought an angel to a devils fight. Luca drops "swiss cheese" Bob. He checks the side of his chest. His hand comes back red with blood. He punches the panel. The door closes. FEMALE VOICE (V.O) (automated) Warning. You have ninety seconds to enter a valid code. Luca's back slides against the wall as he collapses to the floor, leaving behind a thick trace of blood. He pulls a photo out of his pocket. (V.O.) I can still remember the smell of her breaths as she whispers her sweet, seductive words in my ears. FEMALE VOICE (V.O) Warning. You have sixty seconds to enter a valid code. He notices a thick pen in Bob's pocket. He picks it up. He weighs it. Too heavy for a pen. He scrutinizes it. (V.O.) I couldn't care less about those bastards plans. I just want my Alessa back.

6 He finds a removable cap covering a flashlight. He twists it. It turns on and emits an ultraviolet light. He frisks Bob. He finds a small book. He flips the pages. FEMALE VOICE (V.O) Warning. You have thirty seconds to enter a valid code. There is a suspicious three blank pages in the end. He points the flashlight at the pages. It reveals a secret writing. The codes. He finds level seventeen and a half. He enters the sequence. FEMALE VOICE (V.O) (CONT D) Moving to level seventeen and a half. Please be patient. The car moves again. Luca reloads his revolver. ALESSA (V.O.) (FLASHBACK) Luca, I want you to show me all the cities in the world. I will take a picture in each one of them. And buy a souvenir. Luca strains to stand on his feet. He fights to keep his eyes open. Lost too much blood. ALESSA (V.O.) (FLASHBACK) (CONT D) Luca... Stay with me, baby, the night is still young. The door opens, so do Luca's eyes. He storms out. O.S. Gun shots. Shouts. Glass breaking. More gun shots. Rapid fire. MR. OPTIMISTIC (O.S.) I think I got him. MR. WET-PANTS (O.S.) What you mean "you think?" MR. OPTIMISTIC (O.S.) He's not moving any more. MR DEAD (O.S.) I'm gonna check him out, you pussies. (then) Fuck!

7 The chaos resumes. Guns. Shouts. Breaking sounds. Then absolute silence floods the place. BANG! Gun shot. (O.S.) Alessa!... Alessa!... Alessa baby where are you? MR DEAD (O.S.) (gurgling) Your bitch is dead. Luca drugs himself back into the car. Shot to hell. Barely moving. He punches the wall in frustration. He cries. ALESSAAAA! He falls on his knees. He cocks his revolver. Puts it to his head. Starts squeezing the trigger. Luca? ALESSA (O.C.) FADE TO BLACK THE END
